John Bloom, 26 son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Bloom, Route 1, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.), is recovering in St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield from a gunshot wound in the right leg suffered Friday afternoon.

The accident occurred on the family farm just prior to the butchering of an animal. John entered the barn with a revolver strapped to his waist. He lost his footing and fell against a wall with the door slamming against his body at the same time. The jar caused the gun to accidentally discharge. The bullet severed two arteries in his leg, and he was rushed to the hospital by the Loyal Ambulance Service.
